QLogic Gains Share In FCoE Adapters, Accelerates Growth In 10Gb Ethernet Market

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Aug. 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC) today announced that the latest research from Dell'Oro Group and Crehan Research confirms that QLogic gained global market share in the 10Gb Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) adapter market for the second quarter of calendar year 2012, increasing the company's presence in the 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) market.

According to the Q2 2012 Ethernet adapter market share reports from both Dell'Oro and Crehan Research, QLogic led its nearest competitor by more than 18 percentage points in non-captive revenue share of FCoE adapters for the quarter ending June 30. The company attributes the growth to the increasing availability of 10GbE solutions and Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600-based (formerly known as Romley) servers, and strong preference for the QLogic® driver stack.

"The ecosystem of 10Gb Ethernet solutions and Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600-based servers is rapidly permeating the marketplace, and that trend is driving up the attach-rate for QLogic 10GbE FCoE adapters," said Amit Vashi, vice president of marketing, Host Solutions Group, QLogic. "These share gains reported by Dell'Oro and Crehan serve as evidence that customers prefer the QLogic brand because of our battle-tested, widely adopted software stack, which makes it easy for customers to migrate seamlessly to these next-generation platforms."
